Description Ulrich Drepper 2004-12-09 20:19:55 UTC
Description of problem:
I have an nvidia quadro which allows running multiple heads off of one card. 
The card detection in the multihead tab shows no second card.  Therefore on exit
of s-c-d it prints:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 200, in ok
    if card.getCardData()["NAME"] ==
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get_data'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.get card with support for more than one head
2.run s-c-d
Actual results:
error above

Expected results:
nice, usable config file

Additional info:
The card in question is

Same here with Radeon 7000 

Comment 2 Ulrich Drepper 2006-05-27 17:33:38 UTC
This specific problem seems to be gone in FC5.  Whether it all works correctly I
haven't tested (I don't want to lose my configuration) but at least the second
head can be enabled in the GUI.
